Housekeeping Note

I’m flying up to San Francisco tonight, and I’ll be spending the next couple of days plotting global domination at MoJo’s chrome and glass world headquarters on Sutter Street. Blogging will be either light or nonexistent depending on how well the planning goes, the vagaries of Wi-Fi, and the fluctuations of my mood. I’ll probably have something about the State of the Union address tomorrow, but no promises beyond that. I’ll be back on Thursday.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
